A Little Bit of History
The development of Boise’s North End began in 1863 when the O’Farrell family built the city’s first permanent home, a cottonwood cabin on Fort Street. More than a decade later, the first neighborhood was platted in the area between what’s now North Junior High and the Boise Co-Op. The expanded North End currently spans to 28th Street, with Elm Grove Park anchoring the western side.
Ornate Queen Anne villas and catalogue homes were the first to be on trend in the North End. After 1910, modest bungalows were preferred by the working class community for their functional style and efficient layouts. Today, those ornate Queen Anne villas on tree-lined Harrison Boulevard (named for our 23rd president) go for more than $1 million, while the 1920s bungalows are not far behind. The lot sizes get larger the farther you get from Camels Back Park, and many homes are being regularly restored.
